Many of us here are now fully vaccinated against COVID-19, so when will we be able to eat out with other vaccinated people?

Can the restaurants give notice in the paper or on "Nextdoor Brookings" that an area of the restaurant will be set aside for those fully vaccinated people, so we can eat in instead of just getting take out that costs more, has less food and leaves us with a lot of trash to toss out?

Whereever that area is, it needs to be AWAY from the entry door so those anti maskers can't come near us. Vaccination is not 100%, it just protects us from getting very sick and dying, I hope.

Really? After all the BS that the country has been through… I don’t even know where to start. Maybe, learn how to cook and eat at home! People act like not being able to go out and eat at a restaurant is “ unbearable“.Really?? Stop and look at the big picture for once!
